  • Maurice Blackburn 1H20 Results

    Feb 20, 2020
    On 14 February 2020, Maurice Blackburn (MB, Company) announced 1H20 results for the six months ended 31 December 2019. Total revenue, consisting of service and litigation revenue, was broadly in line with 1H19. However, MB reported lower NPAT in 1H20, owing to a large one-off adjustment which related to how the Company calculates exit payments in 1H19. Given the seasonality in revenue we expect 2H20 to be stronger for MB. Furthermore, we expect stronger free cash flow generation driven by improvements in working capital, as the Company is expected to experience a significant reduction of work in progress.
